How to Set Up NavUserPassword Authentication in Business Central.

Hi Readers,

In this article we will discuss steps to Setup NAVUserPassword in Business Central on-prem.

NavUserPassword is an authentication method that's handled by Business Central Server, but isn't based on Windows users or Active Directory. Each user is set up with a username and password that's configured inside Business Central only. The user is prompted for username/password credentials when they start the client.

#msdyn365bc, #credentialtype

To achieve this, we will go through 3 steps - 

Task 1: Set up your Business Central user account with a password.

  • Open the Business Central client.
  • Go to the Users page, then open your user account.
  • Under Business Central Password Authentication, choose the Review or update the value for password. button next to the Password field.
  • Enter the password in the Password and Confirm Password fields, then choose OK.
  • Make sure to assign required permissions.
  • or you can use below powershell cmdlet to add user and permissions.
  • New-NAVServerUser -ServerInstance <ServiceName> -UserName <UserName> -Password (Read-Host "Enter Password" -AsSecureString)
  • New-NAVServerUserPermissionSet -PermissionSetId SUPER -ServerInstance <ServiceName>-UserName <UserName>

Task 2: Configure Business Central Server.

  • Set the ClientServicesCredentialType to NavUserPassword.
  • Set-NAVServerConfiguration -ServerInstance <ServiceName>  -KeyName ClientServicesCredentialType -KeyValue NavUserPassword
  • Restart the server instance.

Task 3: Configure Business Central Web Server components

Configure the Business Central Web Server components to use NavUserPassword as the credential type.

  • Set the ClientServicesCredentialType key value to NavUserPassword.
  • Restart IIS Server.

Hi Readers, We have already talked about the number of steps for upgrading to Business Central on Premises from different NAV versions. After that article, I received multiple requests for an article which list down steps for Data Migration. In this article, we will discuss steps of data migration to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem) from NAV 2017. For this article, I am considering a Cronus Demo Database without any customization.
